The 2pac thread got me thinking. Most music I don't care for, I tune out just fine. Rap is the one that pretty much annoys me on contact. I try not to let subjective things bother me, but I actually get offended if I'm forced to listen to rap for more than 20 seconds or so. I've gotten up and walked out of restaurants and coffee shops because a rap song came on and wasn't turned off immediately. Yet so many people like it, smart intelligent people. I must be missing something here. I'm trying to keep an open mind. In my mind, "good rap song" is an oxymoron, as there is no such a thing, and yet that is what I'm going to ask for. What should I give a listen that might convince me there is some value to rap? I'd really love to enjoy another genre of music.
